Singer has recently partnered with fashion up-and-comer Cecilia Cassini. The coolest part? Cecilia is only 10 years old–talk about getting a head start! Singer gave Cecilia a brand new Singer Confidence machine to help her create her very own line, which has already caught the eye of several celebrities and high-end boutiques, such as Fred Segal. This morning Cecilia and her Confidence were even featured on NBC’s Today Show! Check out Cecilia stitching away and chatting with Jenna Bush. What an inspiration to junior and veteran fashionistas alike!
When did you start sewing and/or start teaching the kids in your life to sew? In the latest issue of Sew News, the “Happy Camper” sleeping bag project might be a fun opportunity to help younger sewists get involved. Have the kids choose a pocket applique design, or include them in picking the fabric colors and cutting and stitching. Be sure to send us pictures and post comments about your creations. You might have the next Cecilia Cassini on your hands!
